What's or Wat's up

Bangkok a big city between heaven and horror. For photographers a challenge of chaos and confusion. Temples, tuk tuks and markets are the photographic riches. Bangkok is a city that demands to bring out the photojournalist within in order to reveal its true nature. In the bustle and rattle of the city it's easy to overlook the essential beauty of the residents and their unfailing gentle nature.

Lots of people find it hard to get photos of Bangkok that do it justice, mainly because people find it hard to get a handle on what the city is all about. The cultural experience is not immediately suitable for the touristic traveller – massages parlours, studious monks and the bombastic flowing of the Chao Phraya River do not always translate well into happy snapshots, but if they do it's great.
